Stylized depiction of an activated NMDA receptor. Glutamate is shown in the glutamate-binding site and glycine is shown in the glycine-binding site. The allosteric site, which modulates receptor function when bound to a ligand, is not occupied. NMDA receptors require the binding of two molecules of glutamate or aspartate and two of glycine.
